Internship + Fieldwork Opportunities

Please note:
1.) Other than field schools given through the Harvard Summer School, by listing a field school here we do not necessarily recommend it.
2.) For Harvard students, we cannot guarantee that Harvard/Anthropology will approve academic/concentration credit for a field school. For that to happen, petitions must be submitted to Office of Career Services(OCS)/Office of International Education (OIE).
3.) We recommend that Harvard undergraduate students contact the Head Tutor for Archaeology in the Department of Anthropology or another Harvard program adviser for assistance in evaluating a field school before deciding to enroll.
